This publication is a comprehensive guide to core metadata for supporting the long-term preservation of digital materials. It includes the PREMIS Working Group Final Report, the Data Dictionary, and Examples.

These sections are also available as separate documents at the Web page here. http://www.oclc.org/research/projects/pmwg/

In 2003 OCLC and RLG established Preservation Metadata: Implementation Strategies (PREMIS), an international working group. This report and the PREMIS Data Dictionary version 1.0 are the culmination of nearly two years of effort by PREMIS members. The Data Dictionary defines and describes an implementable set of core preservation metadata with broad applicability to digital preservation repositories.

This report is intended to put the Data Dictionary into context, explain the underlying assumptions and data model, and provide additional information about the meaning and use of semantic units defined in the Data Dictionary.
